Monty’s posting of a theory about team CFVY reminded me that I never tried to put my own together.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqcwk42hoIg&list=UUNaxSd_jd1VKen6rcHaz41g&index=1

While I agree with some points, I think there are a lot of things that might be off.  Kind of a 50/50 thing.  Given that we have so little information, it is really hard to say.

So first we need to look at a few facts.  I went to the RWBY Wiki, which has links to tweets and teasers posted by Monty—-very helpful.  First and foremost, we need to remember one important thing—-

"Velvet’s teammates greatly value her abilities and have had many battles together."  This was quoted from the contest—I remember that line.  So that throws out several of that guys theories about the relationship between Fox and Velvet.

Something the Wiki points out is that all but Fox has a relation to sweets—HOWEVER there is a UK company called Fox’s Confectionery located in Leicester.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fox%27s_Confectionery

http://www.foxs.co.uk/

So, looks like they are all based on sweets of some kind—which makes perfect sense because some kind of sweet is often had with Coffee :D  Well, except for Yatsuhashi.  That particular sweet is often served as a side with Japanese Green tea, called Matcha.  That also explains his coloring :)

So let us take a look at the first member—Coco.  Really, we don’t know much at all.  Her design is reminisce of most strategically minded individuals from animes and RPG based games.  In fact, she reminds me specifically of this wonderful character:

http://www.valkyriestudio.net/cc/trigger/downloads/wallpaper/lucca-1024.jpg

While the guy in the video pictured her as being wild, I completely disagree.  I see her as the cool calculating type.  She always has a strategy, and she is constantly creating her weapons from things in her bag.  Much like Rikku from FFX (this was actually other job classes in earlier version of Final Fantasy as well.  And we know Monty likes those games—just look at Dead Fantasy).  So Coco looks much like the kind who doesn’t really tolerate stupidity.  She probably enjoys things like chess—and if she does cause any problems, it is because she gets into an “inventing” phase.  We don’t know what kind of beret she is wearing.  It could be military or artistic.  She has a steam-punk vibe to her, though.

While Coco is probably not a mage, I think she uses the bullets and items in her bag to make explosions.  Each combination will have a different effect.  Great for cover if they need a smoke bomb or a boost.  I do get a military vibe from her—-the kind to bark out orders and be quick, succinct, and expect you to understand it with little explanation.  If you do need an explanation, she might be a little exasperated because “It is so simple!”.  However, she could probably go on for hours about her favorite topics of chemical reactions, inventions, etc.  Well, that is the vibe I get from the image of Coco.


Fox.  Okay, this guy looks the part of foxes.  I agree with the video—he will be a trouble maker.  I don’t think he is the type to bully Velvet, but I think he dislikes her timid personality and is constantly jibing at her to grow a spine.  The conflict between them would be more like that than him actually hating her.  He has the feeling of someone who is a bit lazy, but is super-cunning.  He will let Coco handle all the strategy—he is better at thinking on his feet.  The tonfa-like weapons.  I knew I had seen that design somewhere before—-well, something similar.  It took me a while to find something like it—-Tekken, Dead or Alive, Soul Calibur…and that last one was where I found it.

http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2012/053/2/a/soul_calibur_iv_talim_render_by_vonman-d4qkbeb.png

I can agree with the video, obviously Fox is a melee fighter.  He can bash with his fists, as they have protective covering and will cause tons of damage, or he can slash and hack if something gets too close.  It wouldn’t surprise me if the blades can be snapped forward to add more range and act similar to claws.

I imagine more friction between Fox and Coco than Fox and Velvet.  His lazy, someone else-can-do-it attitude probably irritates her and they may be at odds in regards to cleanliness as well hehe. 

Okay, so we have a bit more information about Velvet.  We know that she is timid and quiet, much like a rabbit.  She doesn’t like confrontation, but she probably is also not willing to talk about things with her teammates because she doesn’t want to be a burden.  Monty points out in his Velvet Battle Gear contest journal entry the following:  “What I can tell you is her battle class. She’s a mage. But not just your typical mage, no; she’s… different.

Velvet is agile and athletic, with a modest, modern taste in fashion. Due to her versatile fighting style, I’d advise against incorporating heavy armor, or armor of any sorts that could hinder her abilities. Rabbits are light on their feet, after all.”

The only clue we have about her weapon is a box

http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20140404005438/rwby/images/thumb/3/32/Velvet%27sBoxOfWhatever.png/500px-Velvet%27sBoxOfWhatever.png

With her symbol upon it—a stitched heart.  From the design, it is obvious that the box’s lid splits open from the center of the lid.  I like the video’s theory about some kind of puppeteer, but I think there needs to be a bit more.  She is a Mage, after all.  So far, we do know that there are two kinds of Mages: Dust and Aura.  The mages we know are more than in the video.  We know of Cinder, Glynda, Ren and Weiss.  I count Ren because of his exceptional use of Aura outside of himself, which puts Aura in the Mage category without dust.  Weiss is obviously dependent on Dust.  We do not know completely about Glynda or Cinder, but there is a theory that Cinder has Dust in her dress and Glynda in her wand.  Most likely, each team will have some kind of mage in their ranks for balanced teams.  Even if they are minor mages.  It is very possible that Jaune will come to fulfill that role completely in the future, but I digress..

So the question is, what kind of Mage is Velvet?  Monty pointed out that she is not typical—but we really do not have a context to put that into give the series so far.  In any case, I think that whatever is in that box is manipulated by her Dust or Aura abilities.  Since the lid opens completely, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a puppet following Kankuro from Naruto.  Or maybe more than one type of puppet, allowing her to do a variety of things.  Perhaps it is a multitude of different “toys”—for example, a horse to boost speed of the members, or something along those lines.  Or, if it is drawing directly from the Velvet book then a fairy-type?  Many possibilities.

Now for Yatsuhashi.  Monty was enjoying posting all those yummy pastries!  If you ever get a chance, try them.  They are really good!  The center is something called “anko” which is basically sweet red bean paste.  

Now, the weapon shape is nowhere near what a shamisen or koto looks like—-even stretching the imagination.  It is more like the Naginata, or similar to what Sagara Sanosuke used in Rurouni Kenshin (or various characters from several fighting games).  I agree that Yatsuhashi is the tank—-but I think he is more akin to Zatouchi than sound-fighting.  I think that he can swing that weapon hard enough to cause a small earthquake, though—and his hearing is probably super sensitive.  In other words, I think he is blind :)  (By the way, Zatouchi is a blind samurai swordsman.  Old but good show.)

I think that the images are also a hint at his personality more than his weapon.  He is probably a samurai type.  Quiet and reserved, doesn’t say much.  Maybe takes Velvet in as his younger sib and is a bit protective of her.  I don’t see him as the type to talk a lot, but despite his lack of sight, he is extremely observant of the area around him.  He is probably musically inclined—maybe he plays either or both instruments.


So that is my prediction.  I guess lots of people are wondering why the team isn’t helping Velvet out with the bullying.  I have found that, with Monty, sometimes the simple answer is the best answer.  And that is—they don’t know.  She won’t tell them and Cardin, no matter how much you hate him, is not stupid enough to bully her in front of a team where the tank is twice his size.  The idea that her team was not at beacon yet doesn’t hold water.  They have to go through the trials together, and there is no proof that Ozpin threw everyone off the cliff together.  Most likely, it was in groups.  Them not caring about and not liking Velvet because she is Faunus doesn’t hold water, either.  Monty specifically said that they value her abilities and have fought many times together.  You can’t value someone’s abilities if you hate them for what they are.  It is also difficult to be a cohesive unit if you hate each other.  There was some hinting at this fact during the Emerald Forest arc with Ruby and Weiss.

Now…if they have fought many times together as a team…wouldn’t that mean that they have been a team for a while?  Would that indicate that they have been at beacon for a while now?  Maybe older than RWBY and JNPR?  That would put them as seniors or at least one year ahead of the others.

Anyway, that is my take on the team.  I don’t think any one else on the team is a Faunus—oh, and the video said something about Velvet have night vision?  Nope, that was only *some* types of Faunus.  Rabbits don’t have night vision, or not very good anyway.  Cats are more likely as well as a few other species.  The fact that in, it says specifically in Episode 12 part 2 of Jaundice that “Many Faunus are known to have nearly perfect sight in the dark.”  Many.  Not all.  Not most.  Which means, that most likely the night vision is connected to the type of Faunus.

Whew…glad I got that out before the next episode.  Now I can see how right/wrong I am :)

Oh, and one final point.  IF Velvet was miserable with her team, she wouldn’t be smiling or walking with confidence in those photos above.  She would be sad, cringing, or in a similar pose as Penny with her “team” or whatever that is.  Monty is good at dropping visual hints now and then. :)

Almost forgot

All of the millions of tidbits running through this episode—-I mean, Nora wasn’t only the Queen of the castle, she was the Queen of Hearts! (Off with their heads!!) and the easter eggs that will take a least a few more viewings to catch.  Some movement reference to the first season as well—the Dust shop reopening (that old man is so cute) and man..just too much.  Definitely on overload here :D

God the awesomeness that is Volume 2 is indescribable!  I could watch it a million times!

First up…man, the new technology they are using in the studio is great!!!  Facial expressions are becoming more detailed and expressive, backgrounds are more fleshed out.  Looks like specifics like lamp posts and benches are still out, but it still looks great.

So we get our first look at Mercury and Emerald—their attitudes are quite
interesting.  The two have a very interesting interaction.  Apparently they
usually banter more, or Mercury just loves to pull Emerald’s strings and she doesn’t want to get worked up today.

The scene with Tuckson’s was chilling and really gives a hint as to what may happen with Blake.  Tuckson was pretty cool! :D  I mean, you think he was going to go quietly for a moment and then he just says “No!”

Something that really sprang to mind—-Mercury and Emerald were talking about how he was a Cat-Type Faunus.  I noticed that he has yellow eyes, just like Blake.  It is interesting because Blake, this Tuckson,
and Cinder are the only people we see with yellow eyes.  This is a typical trait of cats when you think of it—cats do usually have slightly different color eyes, but they are usually yellow or gold in color.  It doesn’t necessarily mean blood relation, but similar species of Faunus.  The eyes of Tuckson are a little different in connection to his cat-type, whereas Blake is more of a domestic-cat type.    From Tuckson, we learn that not ALL Faunus have visible Faunus features.  Tuckson, for example, was retractable claws.  And yes, the similarities to Wolverine were so obvious that you had to have been under a rock to not catch them.  Or maybe Sabertooth would be a better comparison as he had retractable claws in his nails whereas Wolverine had them in his hands :)

Now, it is true that Cinder uses fire elementals as her primary weapon—however, Yang also uses fire and she does not have yellow in her eyes at all.  I don’t think the favored element of your dust/aura use affects eye color because it comes much later.  Really, the only time an eye color is affected is when Yang goes berserk.  So that gives a high potential of Cinder being a cat-type faunus.  Monty has said in various interviews that the eye colors were important, that having certain parents and
lineage gave you certain color eyes.  There was a big deal made about Ruby’s silver eyes as well.  And so far we have seen Faunus with animal ears (Blake, Velvet and some protestors on the news in the first episode) and Faunus without ears (Sun and Tuckson).  We have seen claws, tails, ears and horns.  That gives potential for other

Faunus to hide as well.  There are other animals that could have the same or similar eye colors—Owls an snakes for example—but it is not likely that we will see a human with those eye colors.  Only time will tell! :D

I think Mercury is interesting and I wonder if Emerald is one of those “honorable” thieves.  He made a great impression of hard-luck potential victims.  It could be that she won’t take from *those* people who are really struggling.  Emerald seems to be an avid reader—she knows a lot of titles of different books.  Mercury is a comic guy.  I think this is kind of important.

I have to admit, the part where Mercury is turning down the lights as Emerald spoke really creeped me out.  As well as when he was slamming each book shut, and the sound got progressively louder and louder….

Oh, so did any one else notice the amo on his boots?  It took me a time or two before I saw.  Boot guns.  Pretty cool :D

So, then we move onto Blake and she has a journal! Not only that, but she is a really good artist!  There is an obvious reference to White Fang, Adam, and a Rose…hm… wonder what that could be.  I think in a
way, she was being honest about going over notes from “last semester”.  After all, last semester was the first semester of the show when she first came to Beacon and probably left the White Fang as well.  The way she lingered over the page with the sketch of Adam is probably a bit of a nod
to the shippers that yes, this was at one point cannon .  In fact, she probably still has feelings for him.  I was looking over the notes—-it was obviously an attempt to look like a language of some kind and it is possible that Faunus have their own language.  Either that or, despite Blake’s artistic ability, she has poor handwriting (me too!).  The rose makes me wonder.  Adam obviously has a rose-like tribal mark on the back of his jacket.  Maybe Blake designed it?  Or the Rose is about meeting Ruby…but then ruby has a fully bloomed rose, whereas Adam’s is half-open.

Weiss is still so focused on “team” so much.  When is she going to break lol.  Yang is becoming more and more like Barbara but then, her being a Pun-maniac does not surprise me lol.

We get a brief look at Sun and one of his teammates—-Sun is just so adorable!  He is so excited about his new friends and apparently he and his team are one of those “exchange” students.  Apparently him and
the blue-haired guys are really close.

And now…EPIC FOOD FIGHT!  My god that was the most awesome scene I have ever seen!!!  How it built up and everything was just perfect!  My first thought was that “I am so not surrised that Yang and Nora get along like that.”  It just seems perfect for them :)  In this fight we get to see a ton of awesome moves.  but when you really think about it, it also shows just how good of fighters they are.  They literally take any and everything and use it as a weapon and are able to exert enough control as to not really hurt anyone.


And did anyone else catch the fact that Nora used her Aura during the fight?  I sure did.  It was when she was fighting Blake and swinging the watermelon around.  the strike that knocked Blake into the air was buffered by an Auric ring.  This gives a hint that Aura is not as dependant on Dust as we may have thought—either that or Nora has good control over her Aura, much like Ren.  There is a possibility that the others were using Aura to enhance the food items as weapons—hence why the French Bread didn’t break, etc.  Or not lol

Sun was just so happy and excited—he is right, they are awesome.  Somehow, Sun didn’t get touched by the food fight yet his friend was covered in food lol.  His “cool” friend wasn’t to happy about that :D

 What is interesting is that Sun and his friend were able to hear Ozpin’s remark about how the teams wouldn’t be able to be children for long.

I also loved how everyone ran out of the cafeteria when the food fight started.  :D

Oh, and we get to see a bit more of Glynda!  Now, prior we saw how she kicked but in the first episode—-but now we see that she actually has more telekinetic-like powers.  She literally set the room straight in just a few swoops of her wand!  I think the animation was perfect for her, but I was a little disappointed in the word choice for her line in the script.  Still, I could feel the anger radiating from her.  It was well done.

Okay, last little point—I was watching the moves of the others as they fought.  Blake really seems to struggle with one-on-one fighting.  She didn’t fair too well against Nora on her own.  She seems better as a back-up and support rather than front-liner.  Yang was able to match Ren move for move and really kind of cleaned the floor with him—not surprising at all.

Now for Ruby.  Did she just do a Sonic Rainboom?  Come on, you had to have caught that reference!  But that is a testament to her speed.  She can go so fast that she can break the sound barrier.  She literally cracked the wall just by stopping her forward motion—-it was only the air and force of her movement.  Can you imagine what she is going to be like when she comes fully into her abilities!?

Oh, and another thing I noticed in regards to the interaction with Emerald and Cinder.  Emerald was excited to see Cinder—-and not as a “safe” kind of thing, but like a kid sister or hero-worshiping friend.  Cinder, while oozing seduction and cunning, also has a sense of..motherliness about her.  It is weird.  She treats Mercury, Emerald, and even Torchwick like they are kids or (more accurately for Torchwick) like her toy.  And Torchwick is bit childish in this lol.  Trying to show who the best thief is.  I have to admit, I loved his response to the question “Why wasn’t Tuckson taken care of.”  He just points to everything around him.

And now we get to wonder—-what is this master plan?  What is phase 2?  What in the world do they need with all that Dust?  Why was Tuckson on the hit list?  Did he have information?  And does this mean that eventually, they are going to come after Blake for desertion as well?  Imagine Adam being assigned to eliminate the traitorous Blake, especially now that we are pretty sure there was something going on between them.  I mean—-how many people have sketches of an unrelated boy in their journals without having some kind of feelings for them deeper than “partner.

Okay, I am looking over the RWBY wiki and apparently names have been given for Velvet’s team.  CFVY lol  A few twitter posts confirm that much.  And the wiki needs to add Scarlet to Sun’s team.  Still..someone must be going by a last name, because if the name follows the order in the opening credits, their name is basically SSSN (Sun, Scarlet, Sage, Neptune)  I guess they could use Sun’s last name…then we got WSSN—but again, that is only if the order is based on what is shown in the credits—which it probably is.  Someone may have last name starting with U so it would make something like SSUN or SUSN haha.  Too many possibilities.  Hurry up!!

Next week can not come fast enough!

Actually he said that they WERE blood related and not adopted in the interview. ^_^

Than I probably picked up misinformation from another blogger somewhere :)  It happens.  It was a year ago, so it is hard to keep track.   I should be more careful! :D

I am still trying to find all Monty’s interviews tha

t involve RWBY. :D  Thank you for the help, Friend ^_^

EDIT]: Now i remember—-I read it on the trivia section of the RWBY Wiki!  Sadly, it has recently been updated and corrected due to Monty’s tweet but at one point it did say that none of the girls were related.  This was a year ago when the trailers were just out and everything was hush hush.

Ooo I am so excited!  Just one more day!  and then, Monty Tweets this!

Now where did that thing about Monty saying there was no blood relation?  I remember seeing it in an interview or perhaps heard it from another blog.  Half sister means blood relation :P  (says the one with a half sister).  But the different name thing should have been obvious then lol. 

I think the reason why Monty leaked this is because it isn’t that important and most people figured it out—-and probably it will be in the first couple of episodes, too.  So now I am going to fidget anxiously for the first episode to be released and continue working on the fan art that I am pretty sure will get a mob with pitch forks after me. :)

I love seeing interviews with Monty Oum.  He gives great advice and tips, and he gives lots of little tidbits about RWBY!  Seriously, though, he is probably at the top of my list of people I admire and respect.  He is so open and relaxed with the fans.  I think this is one of his best interviews, but there was another one where he gave really good advice as well.

Everyone who knows Monty has seen Haloid and Dead Fantasy—but here is an oldie that obviously had big influences on RWBY.  Ran into it on accident ,but it was pretty cool.  Obviously old stuff :D

I am currently working on some RWBY Fanart.  Been wanting to do this for a while and am using it to test my level before I start working on the girls and their image.  Look forward to it! :D  And just a few more days to RWBY Volume 2!!!

So much RWBY awesomeness has happened this week—I can not even keep up!  First up, RTX.  I am so jealous of the people who could go!  Not only did they see the trailer, and get the announcements for the RWBY GAME (you heard right!), but they also got to see the first episode!  Damn them!!! :DSo if you haven’t yet, here is the trailer—-at least we can see that now.http://roosterteeth.com/archive/?sid=rwby&v=moreThere is just so much there—-and there were some hints given in interviews at RTX as well.  For example, a spoiler was given about a Food fight and how Monty went into all the epicness of a regular battle possible.  Then I remembered that in the opening, Ruby is holding an unconscious Weiss.  Hmm….epic food fight…unconscious Weiss…hmm…I wonder….. XD  Also that scene with JNPR standing on a tower of tables overlooking the cafeteria—probably they start the food fight lol.  And yes, I immediately saw the similarities to that and this epic fanarthttp://essynthesis.deviantart.com/art/RWBY-Team-RWBY-and-JNPR-Poster-413624493There is another bit of Yang wearing a new outfit!  And then guns being pulled on her lol.  I suspect she went undercover and designed her own undercover outfit.  It is kind of similar to the White fang in color and design.  But it is a cool new outfit as well :DAt the beginning of the trailer, Blake is talking about the enemies that is building up and suddenly I think the opening song is mostly her perspective talking to the other teammates and them coming together and agreeing with her (leading to an attempt to infiltrate the White Fang perhaps?? :DAnd of course all the other awesome stuff—more proof of Penny being a robot (what living person would push someone out of the way and hold up their hands to stop an oncoming truck?In the meantime, I am enjoying a wonderful gift I got from a dear friend who is spoiling the hell out of me!  Weiss!!!!!  And a T-Shirt—-my first ever fan-T shirt.  I usually hate T-Shirts, but I have been wanting more RWBY merchandise!  So much awesomeness!  I really need to get on selling my art so that I can get more of this stuff on my own….just so much to learn, though!  Anyway, that was just a quick update.  Time to go back to my hole until the next thing or whatever :D

Isn’t it beautiful!

And aren’t the green haired-chick and this guys goons of Cinder!?!?!?!?  Could Cinder be younger than we thought?  Or is she the head of her own school—-a Rival school to Beacon!

I love the expressions in this one, that smug frown, the roll of the eyes.  And Ruby was adorable.  Pyrrha is just an awesome fighter—we kind of had hints, but this really shows her stuff.  So this is why she was such a champ that even Weiss bragged about her….

So, who is hungry for RWBY themes?  Well, they are sadly sadly lacking for Facebook, tumblr, Google+ and so on…but I managed to find a couple.

I use Firefox, so these are for that browser.

First up—-tumblr icons!  

https://userstyles.org/styles/95113/team-rwby-icons-home-ask-settings-log-out

https://userstyles.org/styles/95114/team-rwby-tumblr-logo

When I downloaded it, Yang’s symbol was very wrong so I just fixed it myself.  You can use this image—works well enough, I think.

http://i.imgur.com/kReoDl1.png

Now it is time to make Facebook awesome:

https://userstyles.org/styles/100063/rwby-facebook

And let us not forget Google +
https://userstyles.org/styles/99948/rwby-plus


Lastly, if you are using firefox—-perhaps you would like it to look just a touch more nifty.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?q=rwby&cat=themes

Now everything is the Bee’s Knees! :D  But I hope our html/css savvy friends can catch up on making more themes available.  This will do for now! :D

(oh..you know..I am not one for T-Shirts, but I really want the RWBY ones!!!)

So, I thought I would throw in another observation I had a while ago.  I recently started watching Game of Thrones…and was watching the very first episode as they were walking into the north…

And my first thought was—-Geez, this reminds me of the RWBY Red trailer!


Well, it honestly wouldn’t surprise me as I know that RT has a GoT night, and there is no shame in receiving inspiration from other shows.  I mean, GoT aired in 2011 and RWBY aired in 2013.  the scene fit and was totally awesome.  but anyway, I took a screen shot of the two as close as I could get them and…well, looks inspired to me. :)

Of course, there are probably thousands of winter forest scenes like that that I haven’t seen yet.  This just caught my attention. ^_^
